We’re so sorry to hear about Dave’s passing. When we were in Michigan, this past summer, we tried to visit him in Glennie. A neighbor told us he was in Tawas but we weren’t able to find out where as the phone number we had wasn’t valid. Chet and Dave worked together for awhile in Iosco County years ago. We had a couple of nice visit with him over the last few years but we wish we had had a chance for another . Sad to hear this news. Our condolences to his family.
— Chet and Rena Wilson
Thank you so much for your service. To Michigan and to this United States of America.

To David’s family, we new Dave as well as Helen and Ed for many years. Helen was one of the sweetest ladies we’ve ever had the pleasure to know, and Ed was a wonderful guy. My husband Bob was a MSP trooper in East Tawas from 1970-1994. Please accept our prayers and thoughts, David is in a better place
And his demise is over.
God Bless all, Bob & Sandy Oesterling
